Occupying an enviable position between Presteigne and Knighton, two delightful old Radnorshire towns, the Old Vicarage is well placed for discovering this rural corner on the Welsh Borders. We arrived in sunshine and were treated to tea and freshly made cake on the lawn. Later we had a guided tour of the extensive and expertly planted and well maintained gardens.... More

The Old Vicarage What can be said that has not already been said. Arriving at this wonderful accommodation we were met with a warm welcome and a smile. The offer to carry bags was welcome. Easy parking of the car on the immaculate drive way within the tree line area and hidden away from the road and gardens. Tea of... More

Wonderful discovery of this interesting, charming house with its stunning, beautifully laid-out gardens. Enjoyed the warm welcome by interesting owners and, last but not least, a delicious gourmet meal.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 2 nights when we were down visiting for the Hay Festival & it was so lovely that we were both devestated to leave! I wish I could have booked a week just to stay there, the area is beautiful, rooms very large, warm & comfortable and hosts fantastically hospitable. Very friendly & relaxed... More

Our only regret is that we had so much planned, we were unable to enjoy this incredible property to the fullest. Every inch of the home is thoughtfully and beautifully decorated and the garden is equally as lovely. The food, from the homemade jams, bread and yogurt in the morning to the delicious, gourmet evening meal, is outstanding. John and... More

What can I say. This is my first TripAdvisor review and it has set the bar very very high. The work, time and investment Paul and John have dedicated to The Old Vicarage is staggering, the rooms and attention to detail breathtaking. They are fantastic hosts, great conversation and entirely welcoming. The evening meal, prepared by Paul and brilliantly served... More

5 nights in a truly wonderful location. Everything was perfect, Comfortable, clean and fully equipped self catering accommodation. We felt right at home immediately, and didn't want to leave. A little treasure hidden away in beautiful surroundings.

The main drawback to our stay at The Old Vicarage was that it was for only 2 nights. John and Paul have renovated this property beautifully in a Victorian theme, which added to the enjoyment of our stay. Our hosts were friendly, attentive and helpful. Tea and freshly made cakes were provided on our arrival and, on our second evening,... More

We stayed at the Old Vicarage two years ago and had a wonderful time which also proved to make a lasting impression on us. We enjoy exploring new places and so it is rare for us to return no matter how good but with just a few precious days available to relax John and Paul's establishment seemed to call us... More
